What I’m listening to: Moroccan Instrumental Station on Pandora
Some of you have been waiting patiently for this recipe since I told you I was making it for dinner on my Facebook page. This is the most spectacular chicken dish I’ve tried in a long time. I was a little apprehensive at first because I’ve never tried cooking Moroccan cuisine at home before. Boy, am I glad I did.
The colors in this dish are vibrant – with bright green from the fresh parsley and cilantro, orange from the apricots, and yellow from the turmeric on the chicken. And the smell that fills the house is mouth-watering.
This recipe is not as complex as it may seem. You season and sear off the chicken, then put all the goodies in the pot and allow it to simmer together until it’s the most divine, saucy thing. It doesn’t take long. Steam some couscous (sadly, I was all out), brown rice, white rice, or even quinoa and have yourself a feast. I can’t wait to make this for company.
